My students need cell phone lockers so they can put their phones away and focus on learning not social media.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students come from a very large geographical area. Our primary industry is agricultural farming. Many of my students need to work outside of school to help support themselves and the family. Our kids are hardworking and dedicated to learning.
Our school is located in a small town up again the east side of the Cascade Mountains in Central Washington.
I primarily teach vocational hands-on courses like woodshop, engineering, and STEM. In today's society, we are forgetting about the hands-on classes and what those represent to the kids not going to college. With a record number of job openings in the US for skilled workers, we need to get students excited about the vocational classes.
I'm hoping to receive cell phone lockers to help keep kids focused and on task. The lockers requested would be mounted on the wall and students would put their phone in the case at the beginning of the period and take it out at the end. Each student would have a key to their own locker thus keeping them safe.
The biggest hindrance to learning currently is cell phones and the addiction to checking them all the time.
I have tried numerous approaches to keep kids focused but they still feel the need to check their phone. I have talked with other teachers who do something similar and they feel it is working.
